Former f(x) member Choi Sulli is considering a role in the upcoming noir film "Real."
According to SM Entertainment, she has not yet decided to take the role and be Kim Soo Hyun's co-star.
"She is reviewing a role in 'Real but it is only one of several projects currently in discussion," the SM representative told the Korean media outlet Naver TV.
If she does take the role, she will play a reporter and Kim Soo Hyun's leading lady.
Kim Soo Hyun's character is not a nice guy. He's a problem solver for gangsters, who can usually solve most problems with their fists. His character Jang Tae Young is the man who takes care of the really messy problems that gangsters can't solve. That no doubt includes collecting money that people owe gangsters using whatever methods possible. And Jang Tae Young justifies his reprehensible actions as a means to an end. He wants to build a casino and become the most powerful man in his hometown.
Things are proceeding according to his evil plan until one day he runs into a reporter and it changes his life. That would be Sulli's role.
If Sulli does decide to take the part it will be her third film role. She had a supporting role in the film "The Pirates," starring Son Ye Jin and Kim Nam Gil. Then she played a leading role in the 2014 film "Fashion King" which co-starred Joo Won.
Although Sulli left f(x) to act in August, she cannot be considered a rookie actress. She became an SM trainee when she was in fourth grade and began acting professionally when she was 11, appearing as a young princess in the drama "Ballad of Seodong."
She's had small roles in several dramas and most recently had a leading role in "To The Beautiful You," which co-starred SHINee's Choi Min Ho.
"Real" begins filming in January 2016, as soon as casting is complete. Lee Jung Sub, who wrote "Romantic Island" and "Lost In Love" will write the screenplay for "Real" and direct. "Real" can be considered Kim Soo Hyun's comeback film since he has not been in a film since "Secretly Greatly.
